CHM11500 Fa09 Lectures 24 and 25: Polymers READING: Section 10.5, pp. 478-487 Concepts to Understand Describe how carbon’s atomic properties give rise to its ability to form four strong covalent bonds, multiple bonds, and chains, which results in the great structural diversity of organic compounds. Describe how addition and condensation polymers form (know what the elimination products are). Identify three types of biopolymers and their monomers. Describe how the “molecular architecture” of a polymer affects its physical properties.
